Custom 450

Stainless steel is a highly sought-after alloy that has earned a lot of recognition from varying industries and manufacturing services due to its sheer strength and aesthetic appeal.


Possesses yield strength that is three times higher than that of standard 304 Stainless steel.

Custom 450

Custom 450 is considered one of the high-performance alloys that can be easily fabricated and hardened. This type of nickel alloy grade possesses yield strength properties similar to martensitic stainless steel.

This alloy can extremely stand heat-treated conditions and is suitable to be machined into very close tolerance prior to aging. Custom 450 is a higher form of age-hardenable stainless steel that displays excellent resistance to corrosion and moderation in strength.

This kind of alloy has a yield strength that is much stronger compared to that of 100 ksi in an annealed condition but it can easily be forged through a fabrication process. During the heat-treated condition, the ductility and toughness are developed at a much higher level.

Custom 450 is employed in certain applications if other steels like martensitic and austenitic stainless steels fail in corrosive environments requiring great strength and corrosion resistance. This alloy can be suited to undergo various machining conditions like welding and shielded fusion methods.

O’Hare Precision Metals is not only a centerless ground bar supplier but we can also create Custom 450 upon a customer’s demand and range requests.

For us to come up with Custom 450 products with tight tolerance and fine finishes, we utilize both slow speeds and positive feeds for best yield results.

Apart from 450, we also stock Hastelloy, a high-performance alloy that is often used in inert and vacuum environments where aluminum chloride catalysts, hydrochloric acid, and reducing chemicals are present.
